Descrição

'NEW YORK TIMES' BESTSELLER The magnum opus and latest work from Svetlana Alexievich, the 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature a symphonic oral history about the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of a new Russia
When the Swedish Academy awarded Svetlana Alexievich the Nobel Prize, it cited her for inventing a new kind of literary genre, describing her work as a history of emotions a history of the soul. Alexievich s distinctive documentary style, combining extended individual monologues with a collage of voices, records the stories of ordinary women and men who are rarely given the opportunity to speak, whose experiences are often lost in the official histories of the nation.
In 'Secondhand Time, ' Alexievich chronicles the demise of communism. Everyday Russian citizens recount the past thirty years, showing us what life was like during the fall of the Soviet Union and what it s like to live in the new Russia left in its wake. Through interviews spanning 1991 to 2012, Alexievich takes us behind the propaganda and contrived media accounts, giving us a panoramic portrait of contemporary Russia and Russians who still carry memories of oppression, terror, famine, massacres but also of pride in their country, hope for the future, and a belief that everyone was working and fighting together to bring about a utopia. Here' 'is an account of life in the aftermath of an idea so powerful it once dominated a third of the world.
A magnificent tapestry of the sorrows and triumphs of the human spirit woven by a master, 'Secondhand Time 'tells the stories that together make up the true history of a nation. Through the voices of those who confided in her, 'The Nation 'writes, Alexievich tells us about human nature, about our dreams, our choices, about good and evil in a word, about ourselves.
Praise for Svetlana Alexievich and 'Secondhand Time'
Like the greatest works of fiction, 'Secondhand Time' is a comprehensive and unflinching exploration of the human condition. . . . Alexievich s tools are different from those of a novelist, yet in its scope and wisdom, 'Secondhand Time' is comparable to 'War and Peace.' 'The Wall Street Journal'
Already hailed as a masterpiece across Europe, 'Secondhand Time' is an intimate portrait of a country yearning for meaning after the sudden lurch from Communism to capitalism in the 1990s plunged it into existential crisis. A series of monologues by people across the former Soviet empire, it is Tolstoyan in scope, driven by the idea that history is made not only by major players but also by ordinary people. 'The New York Times'
''
If you want to understand contemporary Russia, 'Secondhand Time' is essential reading. 'Newsday'
There s been nothing in Russian literature as great or personal or troubling as 'Secondhand Time' since Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn s 'The Gulag Archipelago, ' nothing as necessary and overdue. . . . This is the kind of history, otherwise almost unacknowledged by today s dictatorships, that matters. 'The Christian Science Monitor'
[Alexievich s] longest and most ambitious project to date: an effort to use an oral history of the nineties to understand Soviet and post-Soviet identity. 'The New Yorker'
In this spellbinding book, Svetlana Alexievich orchestrates a rich symphony of Russian voices telling their stories of love and death, joy and sorrow, as they try to make sense of the twentieth century. J. M. Coetzee'
